In addition, our Boston Recovery Pathways project focuses on people with drug and alcohol issues in Boston and the surrounding areas, as well as providing support to families and local Eastern European communities.


The purpose of the Innovation Fund is to provide a number of small grants for local initiatives which will benefit and help develop and sustain the recovery (from Substance Misuse) of individuals, groups and the wider recovery communities of Lincolnshire.

The application form allows you to show the panel how your project fits in with the aims of the Innovation Fund, and will give the detail the panel will need to help inform their decision. You can discuss your idea/project with your local Service User Representative or contact a member of staff at the Double Impact Academy before submitting your application.
